Choosing a New Entry Door

Choosing a new entry door

Posted on December 18, 2015.

The front door of a home adds character as well as security.It is important to consider a few factors prior to any door installation to ensure that the finished product is aesthetically pleasing and long lasting.Be sure to address each of these topics during the process of choosing your new door:

Opening Size

Replacing the door frame along with the door is standard practice in most applications.There are standard door sizes, and most doors come pre hung on a frame with hinges.If you’ve always wanted a sidelite or two, this is the perfect time to enlarge the opening.Stick to expanding only the width, rather than the height, to simplify the process.

Security

An important element of any exterior door is the security features.Though the hardware is separate from the door itself and must be installed after the door correctly mounted, there are other features, such as a peep hole, or between-the-glass blinds, that need to be considered prior to door installation.

Climate

An energy-efficient door can decrease monthly utility bills by as much as ten percent!For many homeowners that means the new door will pay for itself in the first year or two after it is installed.Wood, steel and fiberglass are all common exterior door materials, and they each have different insulating properties.Sites where moisture or direct sunlight will be a factor should consider steel or fiberglass for a longer-lasting product.

Color and Style

The best part of a new front door is getting to see it each time you return home.As the focal point of your residence, it is important that the door’s features match the existing architecture and materials.When you’re looking to make a statement, choose a style that fits and then use a bold color, such as red or teal, to show off your new entrance.When considering a new door installation in Richfield, Utah, contemplate climate, security and size alongside style.
